Pat Rizzuto, "Biobased Diesel Companies Petition EPA For Rules Comparable to Traditional Diesel," Bloomberg BNA Daily Environment Report, October 22, 2014.

On October 21, 2014, BRAG® submitted two petitions to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requesting that biodiesel fuel manufacturers be granted the same Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) exemptions that petroleum-based diesel manufacturers already receive.  Bloomberg BNA Daily Environment Report covered the petitions in this feature story.

Renewable chemicals are emerging at a fast pace, paving the way for new, innovative, and sustainable biobased products. The renewable chemicals’ market is estimated to reach $83.4 billion by 2018 in applications ranging from transportation and agriculture to textiles and cosmetics. In addition to all the elements great companies need to succeed -- a great product, a great brand, inspiring leadership, and vision -- biobased product companies need to understand how the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) occupies a virtual seat at their management table, whether or not they know it.


Lynn L. Bergeson, Charles M. Auer, and R. David Peveler, "TSCA and the Regulation of Renewable Chemicals," Industrial Biotechnology, October 2012.

Lynn L. Bergeson, Charles M. Auer, and R. David Peveler published an article appearing in the October 2012 issue of Industrial Biotechnology. The article discusses how the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) applies to biobased chemicals, and suggests strategies for industrial stakeholders to ensure the successful introduction and marketing of biobased chemical products.
